What is Algolia?

Users are definitely using at least one of YouTube, Amazon and Facebook. This is an important feature that bigweb sites share. However, the reason they are looking for greatness is that they have hundreds (if not thousands) of people working full-time.

But your company isn't a search company: It doesn't make sense to hire hundreds of developers to reinstrite search, but that's where Algoliatamda comes in : It helps you search your sites and apps efficiently, flexibly, and understandably.
